Pikes Peak Habitat and Thrivent Worldwide Disaster Relief Build

Women working on a floor

This fall Thrivent is partnering with Pikes Peak Habitat for our very first worldwide disaster recovery trip, where we will get the opportunity to serve a community affected by a devastating wildfire. The most destructive and expensive fire in Oregon’s history, the Almeda fire, scorched through Rogue Valley in September of 2020. The fire left behind a 13-mile-long burn scar, destroyed 2,600 homes and 200 businesses, and left 10,000 people displaced. Habitat for Humanity Rogue Valley has taken the lead in the county’s Long Term Recovery Group to rebuild their community and bring survivors back home, and our team will have the opportunity to be a part of this work. 


Please join us!

The trip will take place October 6-12, 2024.
